Travel Portland Foundation

What is the foundation and what can it do for you?

For more than 20 years, the Travel Portland Foundation has provided our region with well-educated tourism workers by funding educational and training opportunities.

In partnership with community leaders and educational institutions, the foundation advances awareness of the value of diversity in the hospitality and tourism industry. In recent years, Travel Portland awarded several educational scholarships and supported student internship programs with The Asian ReporterThe Hispanic Chamber of CommerceNAYA Family CenterREAP, and college and university hospitality programs.

Support the foundation, support our industry’s future.

Your support of the Travel Portland Foundation helps to fund and inspire future globally minded leaders in our industry — leaders who may one day become your employees.

Support the foundation via a silent auction at our upcoming 40th anniversary open house, scheduled for Dec. 12 at our First & Main office. You can also contribute to the foundation when you remit your annual partner dues invoice. By doing so, you allow us to continue to engage our community and industry leaders and support the future pipeline of hospitality professionals.
